    An American 777 wide-body jetliner was lumbering along at 800km/hour at 33000 feet when a cocky F-16 fighter jet flashed by at Mach 2.

    The F-16 pilot decided to show off. On his state of the art radio that is part of his state of the art 3D & million dollar headset, the F-16 youngster told the 777 pilot, "Hey Captain, watch this!"

    He promptly went into a barrel roll, followed by a steep, unimaginable, vertical climb. He then finished with a sonic boom as he broke the sound barrier, as the F-16 screamed down at impossible G's before leveling at almost sea level.

    The F-16 pilot asked the 777 pilot what he thought of that?

    The 777 pilot said, "That was truly impressive, but watch this!"

    The 777 chugged along for about 5 minutes at the steady 800km/hour, and then the 777 pilot came back on and said, "What did you think of that?"

    Puzzled, the cocky F-16 pilot asked, "What the heck did you do?"

    The 777 pilot chuckled and said, "I stood up, stretched my legs, walked to the back, used the toilet, then got a cup of coffee and a cinnamon roll and secured a date for the next 3 nights in a five star hotel paid for by the company"

    When you are young and foolish, speed and flash may seem like a good thing! When you get older and smarter, comfort and dullness is not such a bad thing!

    It's called S.O.S.

    Slower, Older and Smarter!

    Dedicated to all my friends approaching S.O.S.
